John Story PT, MPT, CSCS
From a young age I realized I wanted to be a Physical Therapist. I have always been the person people came to for help. My interest in the profession was somewhat a calling. I began my educational journey to accomplish my goal, and it started at California Started University Long Beach. I studied Biology as an undergrad where I further fell in love the human body and how it works. I was able to receive my Masters in Physical Therapy from California State University Long Beach a few short years later.
I have worked in many settings since I have graduated. Hospital based outpatient clinic where I was able to work with all types of people from cardiac rehab, joint replacements, neurologic conditions and pediatrics. I work for a private outpatient clinic which was mostly orthopedics. Finally I worked at the Hoag Orthopedic Institute where I helped people in the hospital setting after having knee/hip replacements and spine surgeries.
I am always trying to learn new techniques so that I can better help my PTs. I currently a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist since 2013. This allows me to help better progress/regress PTs through exercises. Also allowing me to better determine when someone is safe to return to sport or specific activity.
I treat all my PTs as individuals. I use an Evidence Based Practice approach to my craft. This allows me to always do what is proven ethically and the gold standard of care so that my patients can get back to their normal day to day life efficiently and safely.
I was born and raised in sunny Southern California. I now call Texas my home, Proudly. I enjoy keeping active through outdoor activities, the gym and playing with my two children. I thank my family every day to have the opportunity to be theirs because there is nothing more important than family.
